Thank You To The Guy In The Blue Truck

1 post in this topic

Thank you very much to the guy in the blue Dodge truck that helped me and my three young daughters get our Suburban and our trailer turned around on Chisago yesterday. I don't know if he was a FM'r or not, but he was a life saver and he gave up about an hour of his time and a lot of sweat. He helped us when do many others were content to keep on going and look the other way. All he wanted in return was to promise to help the next guy, which I did about an hour later at the Coon Lake access. The snow is deep and I can tell you first hand that I saw plent of 4 x 4's stuck on various lakes. I wouldn't recommend pulling trailers right now. My trailers's tires are wider than my truck and it also rides a lot lower. In this heavy snow, it was like having an anchor out.

I checked Chisago, Green, Linwood, Martin, Island, and Coon Lake. Only Chisago had a narrow road and it looked like the portables were stacked like cord wood at the end of it.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
